NaPoWriMo – Day 5 — ‘Hideaway’


Well, I missed writing a poem for Day 4 of NaPoWriMo, but I just can’t get everything into the same 24 hours. However, I have one for Day 5. You will find it below the picture.


Give me a private hideaway,
Where quiet is amplified,
No harsh intrusions of busy worlds,
Just nature, satisfied.

Give me a private hideaway,
With warm, sun-dappled light,
Where solitude croons to my soul:
There I’ll find myself aright.

    1. Yes, there’s just something about a “special place.” I find myself thinking, “Why can’t you just be satisfied with working right here at home?” But then I realize that because home is also full of tons of other responsibilities and work to be done that require no creativity — just time and energy — there’s too much to distract me. I can even go to the library here in town and sit at a table and accomplish twice as much in two hours as I can get accomplished at home.

    1. Thank you, Dennis. Yes, I am well and fighting the good fight. Of course, sometimes at my job (one of my jobs) I feel as if I’d like to fight something or someone else. The people who run that place are — well —- I don’t use that kind of language. But anyway, you can probably tell that today was not a good day at work. But I’ll get over it. Maybe I can get to my “hideaway” and let it soothe me.

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
